LibriVox recording of The Pastor's Wife, by Elizabeth von Arnim. Read by James E. Carson.
Written by an author born in Australia, grew up in England, married in Germany, and then flew to the United States. A tale about a young woman, freed up from the bonds of her family life, to wonder all around in search of all things feminist. The story seems somewhat autobiographical, surrounded in disillusionment and humor. Written on the eve of World War I and just back from married life in Germany. (Summary by JCarson)

The Pastor's wife falls short of the Enchanted April by the same author. It is interesting, slow, and then interesting again. However James Carson's reading (5+ stars)is so very good that I enjoyed the book (3 stars).
